JAM will be on the menu for Moray Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards dinner.
Young entrepreneur Fraser Doherty (23), from Edinburgh, who set up his company ‘SuperJam’ aged just 14, will be the guest speaker.
Using his grandmother’s jam recipes, he created a range of 100% pure fruit jams, sweetened with grape juice, which are now on sale at over 2,000 supermarkets around the world.
From humble beginnings, the company has gone on to sell millions of jars, has won a variety of awards and is even exhibited in the National Museum of Scotland as an example of an ‘Iconic Scottish Food Brand’.
The dinner on Friday, September 7 at the Mansefield Hotel in Elgin will be hosted by BBC Radio Scotland ‘Good Morning Scotland’ presenter Gary Robertson, a former Elgin High School pupil and currently a columnist for ‘The Northern Scot’.
The chamber’s business award for contribution to the Moray economy, sponsored by The Moray Council, will be presented at the dinner.
Around 250 top business leaders are expected to attend the prestigious black tie event.
